How To Make Luxurious, Heaven-Scented, Essential Oil Bath Bombs

 

To make approximately four 2″ diameter bath bombs you will need the following:

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup epsom salts
  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 1/2 cup citric acid

Wet Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons castor oil (or other vegetable oil)
  • 30 drops of your favourite essential oils (for this demo we used 15 of Eucalyptus, 10 of Geranium and 5 of Lavender)
  • 2 tablespoons witch hazel extract
  • 5 drops of food colouring (optional)

Utensils:

  • medium sized mixing bowl
  • whisk
  • measuring cups & tablespoon
  • 2 stainless steel (not aluminum) bath bomb molds

Directions:

  1. With a whisk mix all dry ingredients in one bowl.
  2. In a measuring cup mix all wet ingredients.
  3. Slowly and gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry while steadily mixing with the whisk.
  4. The resulting mixture should now feel similar to damp sand.
  5. Pack this blend tightly into 2 bath bomb molds and then press the molds together.
  6. Tap the molds with a spoon to release the bath bomb from the mold.
  7. Allow bath bomb to dry for 24 to 48 hours.
  8. Add to your bath water. Enjoy!
